Accommodation on the Camino Ingles?

May 2019 (Camino Ingles)
Hi,
I am planning to walk the Camino Ingles next year (2016) with my daughter. The route I hope to take is as follows:
Ferrol - Neda - Pontedeume - Betanzos - Bruma - Sigueiro - Santiago.
I have been trawling through various forums, facebook pages, blogs etc looking at various accommodation. If I was doing the pilgrimage alone I not be fussy where I lay my head for the night but I am travelling with my 16 year old daughter. She is a very, very light sleeper and understandably would not be comfortable staying in communal Hostels/Albergues.
I have been looking at some Hotel booking sites and have found accommodation in all of the places we plan to stay but some of them are working out to be expensive (€ 70/80 per night for a twin room). Apart from the cost, I/We would love to experience the "spirit of the Camino" where we can mix and mingle with fellow pilgrims.
If anyone has a list of accommodation along the Camino Ingles that allows for booking of Private/Twin rooms I would really appreciate it. Again, If I was travelling alone I would not be concerned with pre-booking but I would prefer to have the peace of mind of being certain of accommodation at the end of each day.

In Neda, Pension Maragoto is right up hill from the albergue (one block away), and is a nice little place run by a mother & daughter. We were the only pilgrims there when we stayed last June, but perhaps you could hang out at the albergue for some pilgrim ambiance?

An option for Bruma is Meson Novo, located just 2 km off the Camino in Meson do Vento, whose clientele is primarily pilgrims. They also offer a pickup service, which you can arrange in advance. They are also family run and get rave reviews for hospitality.

Buen Camino!

HI John,

What month in 2016 are you walk? If i may ask. The reason i'm asking is cuz i walk 3 weeks ago, between May 3-10, and some albergues are large with few sleepers and it may work if you want to save some money.

Buen Camino.

Last year May my wife and I walked the Inglès . In the Neda albergue we found a separate 4 bed room which we used for us two.

In Pontedeume we slept in the albergue only with two other (Spanish) pilgrims you can sleep apt the groundfloor and first floor.

In Miño we were the only guests in the albergue. By then disavantage was that the frontdoor could not locked up so we barricated the door with chairs and also the door of our dormatory. Nothing happened. Hope they mended the lock by the time you will be there.

The Betanzos albergue was the best. An antique and very nice building in the towncenter.all facilities. Only no blankets (by then ). We slept with 5 other pilgrims . Never got bothered by their presence exept for one who smelled terrible and possibly did not wash him self for days. Yaggg. Dried his smelly cloths and socks next to our fresh washed cloths. When I write this I smell him again..yaggg

Meson Novo in o Meson do Vento was I great place to stay. I wrote it before some times on this forum .I agree with @mylifeonvacation too. Great pick up service and the care for perigrinos by the parents of the owner who run the restaurant.

Next stop was Ordes. 3 km off camino we slept in hotel Nogallás. Budget hotel. Nice place, nice restaurant and coffee bar.
A good laugh. Asked in the church close by for a stamp.the priest refused because Ordes is not on the camino:D:D. After a second 3 kms the other way round you are back on the camino to Siguëiro. So not a bad detour. The second 3 kms you walk alongside a road with some traffic. Not as worse as we encountered in Portugal often but advisable is to wear a fluorescent safety vest as we always take with us as standard equipment.

In Siguëiro we slept in hostal Miras but read back on this forum. There changed something. There are good alternatives now.

In Santiago we booked a room via the app AIRBNB. Last year a comfortable room one minute from the busstation. This year, 2 weeks ago, a room close by the Seminario Menor. Not luxury but okay for two nights.

Buen camino.

In Sigueiro I had a pvt room at Albergue de Delia for 25 €, depending on time of year, the Ingles is a quiet camino. I walked it last Oct the first week in it was grand! Only saw 12 pilgrims the entire week

Hi Denis, It looks like i will be walking in July of next year as my daughter will only be finished her exams then. It will probably be a bit busier then but hopefully i wont have too many problems finding somewhere to stay. Did you have any problems on the route?

Hi John,

did not encounter any problems on the route. Twice i missed a turn and i truly believe DIVINE intervention came. I missed a turn and then after 1/4 mile a passing car stopped to tell me that i missed a turn. Just imagine, you can be walking along roads for miles without seeing a car and here a car pass by this time. The 2nd one was about 1000 ft after missing a turn, i heard fellow pilgrims yelling at me that i missed a turn. thinking again there were only few pilgrims walking the camino and yet it happened that they were behind me when i missed the turn.

i believe you won't encounter my experience cause you have a companion who will be another set of eyes looking for the sign. I was alone so if i missed it, that's it.

you'll surely enjoy this camino.. i love it!

buen camino.

Dear John,
There is a delightful 'cottage' in the heart of Pontedeume that can be rented by the night. It has everything for the weary traveller and is well recommended. It doesn't have a website but it can be found on the following link: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/6944710?s=Nc4M
I hope this helps and good luck.

Johnnie Walkers guide has suggestions for accomodation as does Gronze. We found private places easily this year in or near the stops you mention and most were around 40€. This was in May so July might see a big rise in prices, especially on some of the booking sites.

Inglés (2019)
I know this an old thread but maybe someone can help. My family of five will be doing the Ingles in June. I'd like to stay in albergues but am fearful we will arrive with no beds. Should I reserve two hotel rooms each night instead? I don't want to put my kids in a tough spot.
Thanks

If you are traveling with kids, and can afford, then staying in pensions is going to be more comfortable. Some of the albergues on the Ingles are small in terms of bed size, and if you have accommodation booked in advance, it takes the stress away, especially if you are 5 in number.

Try looking at the following accommodation:

Ferrol - Hotel El Suizo
Xubia - Hotel Kensington
Pontedeume - Pension Casa Apilladeira
Mino - Hostal La Terraza
Betanzos - Hotel Garelos
Bruma - only the albergue exists, so walk on another hour to Buscos to Casa Rural Dona Maria
Sigueiro - Sigueiro Hostal

Don't know how old your kids are, but many of the guidebook stages of the Ingles are over 25km, and some over 30. Think about how willing your kids are to walk such distances each and every day when planning your itinerary
